Know your gear and ride smart. This trail is not for beginners, and is VERY technical.

Description

This route rides great in both directions. If you start off of Calabogie Road, you start off with a nice uphill, leading to the Little Pine Path, which will take you to the Eagle's Nest Lookout where you can catch your breath and enjoy the views.

After Eagle's Nest, there are a few km of hilly, rocky ATV trails that will loop you around to the Manitou Mountain Trail. Follow the ATV trail, and follow the arrows. A few kms from Eagle's Nest, there is a split in the ATV trail. Stay left, and follow the signage to the Manitou Mountain Trail which will be on the right. The singletrack after the ATV trail starts off with a pretty hard uphill, but it's worth the effort.

If you start from Barrett Chute Road, you are faced with a long gradual uphill until you get to the top of Manitou Mountain. Either direction you choose is fun, and has a rewarding view up top and some tricky lines to clean along the way.

Both trailheads have a small parking lot with signage and a map. Dress to be seen during the November hunting month.

Trail is in great shape. A little icy/snow from the freezing rain, but great on the fat bike. 5.4mi
